president hamid karzai declared the situation was under control. about mid morning, several, maybe as many as a dozen or so taliban militants stormed government buildings, including the ministry of justice and ministry of finance, they also took over a shopping mall and a movie theater. this was a very complex, very well organized attack. about an hour after the first shots were fired, an ambulance pulled up to a police checkpoint, in theory there to help the hurt and wounded, but an insurgent was inside and detonated a bomb, killing at least one person at that site. over the entire area, about a 2-mile area where all the attacks were going on, five people were killed and nearly 40, jane, were injured. jane: connor, these attack necessary kabul generally have been happening more and more. what impact are they having? >> jane, it's been devastating here. the international community, much of it is pulling back, some of the international community is pulling out. i talked to international workers, aid workers, u.n. staff, every day to say they're leaving. it's simply too dangerous here. i sho

karzai. i point that out simply because of the proximity to the seat of power theoretically in that country. afghan officials said three soldiers and two civilians were killed. 71 others wounded in that shooting. each of the seven militants were ultimately killed. nbc's chief pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski is live from kabul with the latest. how are we to interpret this level of violence, jim, this close to the seat of power in that country? >> reporter: you know, the timing was unmistakable. the very time the taliban launched these attacks, president hamid karzai just inside the walls of the presidential palace was starting to swear in members of his new cabinet. so, you know, that timing wasn't lost on anybody. and what's interesting about this, is that while u.s. military officials are now praising the afghan security forces for beating back this attack today, the question is, how did they get those forces so close to the presidential palace in the first place? particularly because western intelligence officials have been predicting this very kind of attack, a co
president hamid karzai described his plan to reintegrate taliban fighters into a law-abiding society if they promise to renounce violence. the idea is to lure them back to civilian life with jobs and housing. karzai secured $140 million in pledges to fund this effort which was endorsed by secretary of state hillary clinton and others. >>> the senate today confirming ben bernanke for a second term as chairman of the federal reserve. by one of the smallest margins of all time. the vote 70-30. >>> the author of "catcher in the rye" j.d. salinger has died. the book was his only novel and sold more than 60 million copies since its publication back in 1951. salinger was well known as a recluse who shunned publicity. he was 91, anderson. >> sad news with that. >>> coming up, salesmen in chief. reaction to the state of the union address preaching to the base. did he win over independents? supreme showdown between justice alito and the president. a fascinating moment. what was behind the scowl, though? why the nasty look? we'll get an insider's briefing from jeffrey toobin who knows the supre
. but first, while afghan president hamid karzai was swearing in his cabinet this morning, insurgents staged the biggest assault on the capital city of kabul since october. an iranian press tv crew was right there right before an explosion went off. the press tv correspondent who you saw at the beginning of that clip was injured in that blast and was taken to the hospital. the reason the camera was already rolling when that explosion went off is because that bomb went off midway through the attack. a suicide bomber first blew himself up outside the central bank. the central bank is on the same traffic circle as hamid karzai's presidential palace. this was in effect the equivalent of a suicide bomber hitting lafayette park right across the street from the white house or even the u.s. treasury building right next door. after the initial suicide bombing, gunmen stormed into and took up positions in nearby buildings. then in the middle of that fight, another suicide bombing which you just saw. the driver was in a vehicle that was marked as an ambulance. all the battles raged in the center of dow
with taliban fighters. president hamid karzai said he wants to let militants lay down their weapons and go home, so long as they are not affiliated with al qaeda. karzai spoke in istanbul, turkey, three days before an international conference on afghanistan in london. he said gathering international support was key. >> in the past, this effort by the afghan government did not have the backing or the support of our international partners. this current effort, this renewed effort, i should say, has the backing of our partners, in particular the united states and europe. >> sreenivasan: at the same time, the nato commander in afghanistan said he hopes an influx of troops will force taliban leaders to accept peace. general stanley mcchrystal suggested former taliban could even join the government. he said, "i think any afghans can play a role if they focus on the future, and not the past." also today, nato officials announced two more soldiers-- one british, one norwegian-- have been killed in bombings in afghanistan. the u.s. military will speed up a review of more than 4,300 iraq and afghanistan
attackers were killed. it started as 14 members of hamid karzai's cabinet were about to be sworn in. >>> and the man who shot pope john paul ii was released this morning, taken to a military facility. he served 19 years in an italian prison for a 1981 attack. he was extradited to turkey where he served ten years. >>> they lived through tuesday's earthquake. now hungry, thirsty and desperate, the people of haiti are doing whatever they can to survive. >> for tens of thousands of people, that means crowding into tents and tarps. soledad o'brien takes us inside one of these tent cities. >> reporter: there was enough water in one of the makeshift camps to give some of the children a shower. there was a little food. a makeshift clinic. they even picked up the garbage. but many of the tens of thousands of haitians displaced by the earthquake have no house to go back to, and no new place to go. they live beneath recovered sheets and blankets in the grass and concrete. these hot and dirty encampments that have sprung up in parks and plazas are now their homes. >> the people of haiti need th

on afghanistan reveals how difficult it will be for president hamid karzai to make good on his promise to crack down on rampant corruption in that country. the u.n. office on drugs and crime says $2.5 billion in bribes were paid to public officials over the past 12 months. those bribes added up to almost a quarter of afghanistan's gross domestic product. one person in two in afghanistan had to pay at least one kickback in the last year. >>> corruption, you may recall, is also a big issue in china. today a former judge on china's highest court was sentenced to life in prison for accepting almost $600,000 in bribes. but he's hardly alone. china's official anti-corruption commission said that 106,000 officials were found guilty of corruption last year. last week, the office of the top prosecutor said 4,000 chinese officials had fled the country with a total of $50 billion in stolen cash over the last three decades. which takes to us this question. as chinese technology helps power that country toward surpassing japan as the world's second largest economy after the u.s., is china stealing to get th
today from afghan president hamid karzai and other afghan ministers, but keep in mind, this was a very well-organized complex attack that lasted for five-some hours. in talking to a u.s. official who said while the loss of life was relatively small in comparison to the size and scale of the attack, probably a case of afghan security forces being more lucky than good. there just isn't the capability yet for the afghan security forces to prevent this type of attack. it took several hundred if not several thousand afghan police and military officials to prevent nearly 20 or so taliban insurgents. this fighting lasted nearly all day. they're just not capable yet of preventing these types of attacks. patti ann: conor powell live in campbell afghanistan. thank you. trace: it has been six years since drew pearson's third wife mysteriously drowned in a dry bathtub. today he is heading to court. two of his wives gone. one dead, the other still missing. today a judge will hear what and kathleen savio told people about her fears. can she speak to the court from the grave? next. patti ann: taking
